Hey my mail man keeps giving me the mail for the people in 15, how he can't tell 13 from 15 is beyond me, maybe my mailman and yours are related, lol.

So glad you like everything!! I was going with another fabric but I had seen that one on your pinterest and then I saw it at Joanns so I snagged it up...I did realize though after I had everything packed up and shipped that I forgot the button on your towel, hahaha  Cheesy I found it on the floor next to my sewing machine the other day.

Super glad you like everything, I went big on the potholders because sometimes you just need something more than standard  Smiley  And everything else just flowed from your pintrests, I still can't believe I forgot the button though, lol, I was pretty shocked when I saw it just sitting there and I was like, dang, I've already mailed!

 Hehe I had a great time. The fabric bowls were lots of fun to make. The other side of the 2 potholders are patch worked like the huge one for setting on the table to prevent burns or whatever if you were to put a great bib pot on the table. Thought it was a great idea for 20 unpaper cloth towels and 2 sets of matching towels all the colors cord together I hope with your canisters you made Smiley Loved the post it note holder and ROTFL when we both did gloves LOL I hope you like it all and the felted mit and handle holder I made from an old sweater that was felted and it was just waiting to become somethign fun....I am glad you like it all and hope that it is what you were wanting Smiley I had a blast making it all for you Smiley

I just received a wonderful package from the very kind Suebee! She was such a sweet swap angel :0)

The package was posted with neat stamps, and everything was packaged in red tissue paper. It was a real joy to open!

First, a post card...



I have long dark brown hair and the first thing I thought when I saw it was...  I should try to do something like that with MY hair! It's a very pretty and elegant post card.

Next, the pot holders....



These are my favorite pattern ever! I am a crocheter, and one would think that I'd just make some for myself, but somehow, other peoples crocheting just seems so much prettier and enjoyable than my own.  On the post card Suebee made a comment about how they turned out thicker than she thought they would.  That's exactly why I love this pattern! They are made out of cotton and are in pretty shades or green and corally-peach. 

Then, a surprise!



Magnets!  She said that her husband made them :0)  I really really like these.  They are just thin square magnets but the vintage fruit prints are just so fun and down to earth! I love these!

And...



They match my table cloth perfectly :0)


Thank you to Suebee, my swap angel, and her husband!  My kitchen is ow prettier thanks to you both.

I'm so glad you like them! And they do match perfectly, don't they.

BTW, my husband is a bit of a magnet FREAK, and so this was the perfect thing to have him help me with. You had mentioned a vintage/antique look in your kitchen, so we were hoping they fit in. Cheesy

ENJOY!!
